Spain arrests suspect over multi-million US credit card fraud

Published on 08/09/2015

Police in Spain have arrested a Romanian man wanted in the United States for allegedly running a multi-million dollar fake credit card scheme, the interior ministry said Tuesday.

The 41-year-old, who was not identified, was arrested as he left a garage near his home in the eastern province of Valencia on the Mediterranean coast, it said in a statement.

US officials suspect him of using a “network of fake credit cards” to defraud banks of over five million dollars (4.5 million euros) in 2012 and 2013, the ministry said.
